Cowboy signings

It's good to see the cowboys feeding and supporting that local talent, the more we keep bringing through to the NRL the better for the Cowboys and the game. They've built a strong team from at one stage being constant cellar dwellers like they're supposed to, developing and supporting local talent.

todays paper said brent mconnel is favourtie to get QLD cup player of the year, maybe shep and thurston will have some competition next year which is healthy

Kieran Kerr is a huge signing for the Cowboys it's just many probably don't realise yet (Dogs fans might).


One of the big failures of the Tigers 2004 was not once experimenting with Prince at 5/8 and Kerr at 1/2. We will never know if it could have worked.

Kerr with Thurston on the back of the Cowboys pack will form a lethal combo.

They are talking over the Wests Tigers site like he has but I haven't seen official confirmation.

Kerr behind good forwards will be awesome, believe me.

I agree about Kieran Kerr; his a top player and a great signing for the Cowboys.

I think in all the games he played for Tigers this year, they won so it makes you wonder why Tigers would release him.

It's gonna be a tough battle for Muzz next year, deciding who to start at 5/8 and halfback.
I'd personally start with Sheps and Myles cause they work well together and have Thurston, Kerr and McConnell start in QLD Cup.

That's sad to see Watkins go to Broncos. Anyone know what's happening with Strickers, J-Lo, Vaasa, Sorbello and Aaron Morgan? Out of that lot, probably Strickers, J-Lo and Sorbello would resign and maybe Vaasa but Morgs would probably get released.

Kerr's last game in first grade was against Canberra. That night Hayne reffed his last first grade match he was so bad in the Raiders favor. Canberra had over 100 extra tackles and eventually won 32-24.

Kerr was poor behind a forward pack constantly reeling backwards and a side totally fatigued and coming off 2 massive floggings the 2 weeks prior.

Kerr was treated unfairly IMO and a change of clubs will probably do him the world of good. He is a first grader and i think he will cement a spot at the Cowboys.

Who's gonna be the backup fullback? Neil Sweeney? Drew Campbell? Jimmy Andersen?
Actually I think it might be Brenton Bowen.

Would make sense when you look at this year
Fullback #1 is bowen, #2 is Ty and then in the young guns at the very end of the season Brenton Bowen and Neil Sweeny were named at fullback when they played. He is a great talent but is in a long queue and must want some exposure to other clubs so he can make a living outa footy 
mcroshaw

mcroshaw

Yeah, I think Brenton Bowen will gone after 2005, or he should wait till the end of 2006 where Sing will probably go to UK or retire.

Is that accurate news? That's good that Strickers is staying for at least another year.

Good Luck to Morgs.

Va'saa will play this year, he is in australia at the moment

I am not too sure on contractual details, but a mate of mine was in a gym in bris, and was introduced to him by Hale's mate who he had seen around, and Hale said he was a young gun and was playing next season....

The Cowboys made 3 excellent signings in:

Jonathan Thurston-Something the cowboys needed as they haven't had a 5/8th since O'Neill left the Club.

Carl Webb- Gives the Cowboys even more power up front,Could turn out to be the signing of the year.

Justin Smith- Underated Backrower,Was a gun at St George then just wasted at Souths,He will turn it all around and make a good fist of it at the Cowboys plus he will be a great backup for Josh Hannay.

According to the Big League 2004 Yearbook, Jamie McDonald has joined Melbourne Storm in 2005. Maybe that's a last minute decision by J-Mac and Storm.
Hope he has better luck with injury at Storm. That's a good signing by Storm. His a hardworking prop and gives his all.

elaboration???

is this a guess, or you know something - enlighten us all with how you know this 
sgil5652

sgil5652

just wanted to know if u were speculating or you knew something. So what you are going to wait for the result and then say i told you so if he doesnt stay with us, or if he does stay with us you are going to say i was guessing??? Whats with the attitude these days? 
sgil5652

sgil5652

i never said you said that you were guessing. You said he wont be there, and did not give a reason as to how you knew that, so i am left to ask you are you guessing or do you know this for a fact which you have yet to answer.

Heard a rumor at work that Tronc upgraded his contract another 2 years? any truth to this?
